Can't see a server because of the time-clock issue

Hello guys !!!

The time just changed here in Mexico City, I have a "server" running XP PRO and everything was just fine on Friday, today Monday some of my computers can't connect to this server (shared CD-rom and folders) from the "client" I have an error message that says something like.  Can't connect to the server because the clock is not sync with the domain main clock.

As mentioned, it's only happening in some computers, some other can access to it perfectly.
Hope you can help me

Make sure all of your computers changed their times.  Also check the dates to make sure they are all set right.

try logging into the computers as an administrator  with rights to change the time...  The computer is supposed to synchronize with the DC when it logs in.

i booted several times changing time and time zone.
can you copy and paste the  exact text that you get  in the error message?  When you logged in, was it a domain  accout  with  admin  privileges on local machine?
Need to set "time zone" on all machines, server and clients, to be the same -- some installs probably not set to Mexico City time zone, others are.  Time zone is VERY important to correct working if you have files that rely on date, time, and newer/older to update to server.  All time zone change require a reboot.  To get to time zone, right click on time in task bar, bottom right, adjust time/date, click on time zone tab, and make sure every system, client and server, set to same.  Reboot all (agh!) and then you might have to rerun backup apps or whatever is causing error.
